Two new appointments.
2nds World has announced a restructure within its management team with two new appointments. Denis Harvey has been appointed as Merchandise Consultant and Karl Holdsworth as Retail Sales Manager for NSW and Victoria. They will both report to General Manager, Allen Garb who joined the business 5 months ago after 11 years with the Good Guys and 15 years with the Wesfarmers Group.
2nds World Managing Director, Peter Hammerman said, “As with all growing successful businesses, we recognise the need to adapt and change. It is a requirement to embrace change and continually evolve and look to the future. With this in mind, we have restructured our management team to fit the new retail landscape.”

Denis Harvey has spent over 15 years with The Good Guys in various roles, initially as Advertising Manager and more recently as National Category Manager, White Goods and Business Manager Home Appliances. He will work with the buying team to focus on major suppliers and look for new opportunities. “We are very excited that Denis has accepted the position as he brings vast experience to the role. Denis replaces Alex Mackenzie who has taken a new job with Qantas. Although only with us a short time, Alex has been a wonderful employee and we wish him well in his new role.”
Karl Holdsworth has more than 16 years of retail experience also with The Good Guys, mostly as Store Proprietor and more recently as a consultant. In his new role, based in Auburn, Karl will oversee the appointment of a new store manager as well as taking responsibility for all stores, managers, staff, merchandising and retail processes. “Karl was involved at The Good Guys in the early days both at a store and state level and is known for his attention to detail, bringing extensive retail experience and disciplines to 2nds World. He will be a huge asset to our group in this newly created position.”
Dragi Kozarovski, Chief Operating Officer, will remain Head of Buying in addition to overseeing logistics, HR and services including implementation of our new computer system CRMS.
“I am very excited with the new structure and I am convinced that we are now better than ever prepared for our future,” Hammerman added.
